The bad boy spooky alt/surf rock duo National Barks is back at it with a brand new track to share with the masses. Out now, “Settling for Love at the End of the World” is a ripper. Coming in just over 2 minutes, it’s a loud, funky, thrilling extension of what the band does so well. Dance-y vibes, lush keys, jangly guitar - here’s hoping this is a look at where the band is heading in the future.
About the track, vocalist/guitarist Adam Brandt says “ [This song] was written during the pandemic. On the surface, it feels like a standard love song about a complicated relationship between two people. But it was actually written as I worked through so many conflicting thoughts about being an American during an unprecedented time of turmoil throughout 2020-2021.”
“Settling for Love at the End of the World” was recorded with local studio Sabbath Recording, mixed by Matt Latchaw and Jacob Merritt, and mastered by Danny Kalb.
